Customer feedback:

"Journaling with Jennifer was a different experience.  It was fun, enlightening, and encouraging.  With her guidance, I leaped into it with arms wide open and surprised myself. I'd have never been able to accomplish what I did on my own.  A single workshop opened up possibilities.  I think I may have found a new adventure."   ––Zee L.
